Menswear can sometimes be thought as straightforward and mundane. And when it comes to dressing for class, many guys opt for the “just-rolled-out-of-bed” look, consisting of the cleanest pair of jeans and whatever shirt is on top of a mile high pile of clothes. But expressing your unique point of view is an important part of looking prepared. Although showing up for class may seem like a difficult endeavor in itself, dressing appropriately for class doesn’t need to feel like a chore.
This Fashionisto shows his style with a modern, sophisticated take on leggings. The pants he wears appear to be a pair of shorts layered over black ankle-length leggings. In reality, the “shorts” and “leggings” are one piece, making the layered look easy and innovative at the same time. This Fashionisto also wears a floral button-up shirt by Saturdays Surf NYC layered over a simple, gray cotton tee. Floral patters can be considered mainly a spring print but the correct color choice can make all the difference. Choose darker hues as opposed to bright pastels to keep the look appropriate for fall. The jacket he wears has a quilted texture to it but is simple in silhouette and design, making it the ideal outerwear to finish off the outfit.
To keep the look clean and effortless, accessorize boldly and sparingly. This Fashionisto chose a watch by Daniel Wellington with a large circular face accented by gold and a black leather band. The gold bracelet he wears on the opposite wrist serves to enhance the urban, masculine aesthetic.
Hint: To update your classroom attire, try experimenting with different silhouettes for leg wear. Going for a more daring look like these harem style pants which will help you stand out from the crowd and earn you some serious style points.
